Smelling good is half the sartorial battle won. A great fragrance can instantly upgrade your weekend tee-and-jeans look from humdrum to head-turner. On the other hand, a malodorous scent can transform even a man in a well-tailored suit into a social leper. Don’t fret; here are four fragrances you can consider adding into your regular rotation of scents that will definitely up your smell quotient.

Ermenegildo Zegna Acqua Di Bergamotto


The Four Best New Fragrances of the Season-am_il_v1001_i_8bfbc3b177b829b016071674162895d702_5d21a2659388bb02a4c8e70c28782bfc18

The Italian masters of the suiting game are no slouches in the fragrance department and its new release – Acqua Di Bergamotto – ticks all the right boxes. Housed in a classic bottle, the fragrance is understated, just like the brand’s crisp white shirts. But the scent lingers in the minds of whoever smells it, thanks to the Italian bergamot, found in Calabria and harvested exclusively for Zegna fragrances.

Trussardi Blue Land

The Four Best New Fragrances of the Season-am_il_v1001_i_cd96b5c9d95aa92df70ab7112db9401a63_4a7e05326b75c86e42c0cd37e8c7a5fb84

The name might bring up images of an amusement park drenched by rain but Blue Land from Trussardi pulls no punches. It’s extremely woody with hints of citrus and is crafted for the bars and clubs, when the sun has set and you’re on the prowl, out and about on the city streets. The square bottle, curved at the edges, features a beautiful band made from natural Italian leather at the top. It makes a nice touch and looks as good as it smells.

Dior Sauvage

Johnny Depp, the face of Dior’s new fragrance Sauvage, is 52 but doesn’t look a day above 30. He’s also angry with his guitar for some reason and decides to wander around the desert with a shovel and his hallucinations. That being said, Sauvage is, for lack of a better word, ferocious. It’s fresh and citrusy when you first spray it but settles down into a more masculine, woody scent. The magnetic bottle cap is also innovative and makes me wonder why no one has thought about this before. 

Carolina Herrera Africa Men Limited Edition

The Four Best New Fragrances of the Season-am_il_v1001_i_60dabd95a25cdc51f2b8c476fec1c30850_6f8aa72b7fbb912077ff8d1e9e86686d65

It’s undoubtedly loud, thanks (or no thanks) to the camouflage print that dominates the visible real estate on the bottle. But the CH Africa Men Limited Edition fragrance is quite the treat with its mandarin orange top notes tinged with blue that transitions to a husky smell of black coffee and cedar wood. I’m not sure whether the actual African savannahs smell anything remotely close to this fragrance but the scent is definitely suited for the concrete jungle.
